Bikeless 4 now
2012 DL650 I bought used (from a VERY reputable, meticulous guy) with 19K, now has 20K+. Front Anakee 3 was brand new when I got the bike and now has around 1300 miles, and the rear Anakee 3 has around 6000 miles and is worn flat from mostly slab but has plenty of tread left. The bike rides and handles great but I get this drone that runs from around 52 MPH on up and is only present when the bike is vertical. If I swerve or something it goes away. No shimmy, wobble or pulls. I'm confident it's coming from the tires even though I have Givi crash bars and read all about vibration issues. This is not RPM specific. It comes on at 52 MPH on up to 70 or more. I'm not sure of the upper limit, but I do know it's starting to irritate the hell out of me. It sounds like it's coming from the front. I've been running the pressures according to the manual at 33F/36R but it's consistent no matter what pressures I tried. Anyone experience this or have any other suggestions? I hate to put new tires on already, but I understand that may be the case. If so, I may try the PR4 Trails. I really like Michelin tires. Thanks!
